Me, what I think I'd do is leave the new drive installed, wipe it clean, and try a fresh install from CDROM. Reboot and look for these errors. If they magically are no longer present I'd suspect something went wrong using the Firewire port on the first go around. If you see them again I'd suspect the drive may be faulty with bad media spots and would be a candidate for RMA replacement. There may be a disk diagnostic available which can confirm bad media. Eliminate the hardware as faulty first, just to get it out of the way. -Mike _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
